    That was just the R primary. (I think I know what you mean though--it's still bizarre that he did win it.) But you have to take into acct that Delay's been pulling in 80%+ in regular elections. For him to get 62% in this primary is actually seen as a significant negative marker. His congressional district was recategorized from a safe R zone to a real horse race--as a result of his primary numbers. Apparently, too, he spent +/- $2mil, whereas his highest spending opponent spent about $100K, and all three opponent's were nobody's.

    If any of that is any consolation...:(
